make more than you need anyway, some may break as you assemble.
if its just a pile of roses, id say maybe 9 for the cake? thinking a bottom ring of 5, then 3, 1 in the middle top. but that depends on the size, smaller flowers = more, bigger = less. as you start working you should be able to visualise it better.
or you could do maybe 3 roses and some leaves in a ring. or like along a branch.
really, it depends on the whole look you want, if you search roses then you might find some good ideas.
